IntelliCloud services are available with new deployment choices: Teradata IntelliFlex – our flagship enterprise data warehouse platform that we deploy and manage in our data centers – and public cloud infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that we provision and manage. Each IntelliCloud subscription includes:

IntelliCloud™ services are delivered with three dedicated infrastructure options: Teradata IntelliFlex, a Teradata appliance, and public cloud infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS). IntelliFlex and the appliance are both deployed and managed in Teradata data centers, while AWS infrastructure is initially available from two AWS regions in the United States: US West (Oregon) and US East (N. Virginia). There is no sharing of compute or storage resources between customers.
Customers can choose from several methods for connecting to IntelliCloud. A site-to-site VPN (Virtual Private Network) from your data center to ours is standard when using IntelliFlex or an appliance, while an internet connection is standard when using AWS infrastructure. The site-to-site VPN uses a 100 Mbps IPsec connection to keep data transmissions secure. If greater bandwidth or a dedicated network port is required, Teradata offers 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps direct connections for an additional fee.
Comprehensive infrastructure and software support is provided by the cloud experts on the Teradata Cloud Operations team. This group also performs activities such as provisioning, onboarding, and software patching while continually monitoring and administering the environment. The Cloud Operations team does not have visibility or access to customers’ data – and customer data is never transferred across country borders.
